EFA’s Sixth Annual Medical Conference: Ending Endometriosis Starts at the Beginning

Obviously we are really thrilled with the EFA by the success of the ENPOWR Project has shown and we wanted to bring you here to celebrate a little bit with us today. Up next we are going to have one of our co-founders whom I am sure you all know, Padma Lakshmi, come up and talk a little bit more about that and help celebrate some of the successes of the network that Jenny mentioned and Senator Jeff Klein that helped us be there today. Here’s Padma.


Good afternoon and thank you all for being here. I am very excited to see this room so full. We have been doing this medical conference for several years now as well as our nurses’ conference and patients’ day. It is really wonderful to see so many people who are interested about finding out about the disease or helping others to find out about the disease and spreading the word. It is wonderful to see everyone come together in this way and I invite you to follow on our website the whole program if you cannot be here for it.

I was told I woke up from my surgery almost a year ago with a smile on my face, and I haven't stopped since. Before I heard of Dr. Seckin,…

    Dr Seckin and his team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great. Dr. Seckin, Dr Liu, and Dr Goldstein are not only beyond words talented and amazing Doctors, but they are also genuinely wonderful and caring people. I cannot say enough great things about Holly, Asiye and Kim as well.…

    Dr. Seckin and his staff spared me from years and years of heavy periods and unbearable endometriosis pain. After having surgery with him (my first) I can now function like a regular human. No more eating NSAIDs like candy and calling out sick from work. Thank you, Dr. Seckin!

    I underwent surgery with Dr. Seckin in 2017 and have felt like a new woman ever since. If you have, or suspect you have endometriosis, Dr. Seckin and his compassionate team of surgeons and staff are a must-see.
